Avocados: The Millennials’ Best Friend

Avo-ca-do. A creamy, smooth, and oily delight. If there are any avocado haters please exit this article immediately.

 

Us millennials have been warned many times about the recent avocado toast trend. Millionaire baby-boomers tell us that— if we want our dream home—we should not splurge on decadent avocados. What I want to know is, what kind of life will we be living in our dream home without avocados?

 

I have thought about becoming an avocado farmer, usually during the stressful times of exams and final papers, but I know I must relocate. Did you know there are very few spots in the United States that allow avocado growth? Of course, there is no law against avocado growing, but the strict climate zones make it nearly impossible here in the US. Avocados are accustomed to warm weather and semi-humid climates and require moderate temperatures year-round. If you don’t want to relocate to a different country, you could try moving to Florida, Southern California, Texas, or Hawaii. I would be okay with a cross-country move for this delicious nutrient-packed fruit. (That’s right, it’s a fruit! More specifically, a berry!)

Nutrient-wise, avocados do not contain any cholesterol or sodium, are low in saturated fat, and contain 15 grams of healthy fats! Unlike baby-boomers, your body appreciates your love of avocado toast.

 

In recent years, avocados have been making their way into many different types of food. My favorite avocado treats are: the classic guacamole, avocado toast, avocado brownies (trust me on this!), avocado smoothies, and just plain avocado!

 

So, the next time you are at your local Mexican restaurant or at the supermarket, do yourself a favor and grab some guac!

Until next time, HCXO!
